Intern on the Civic Engagement Team
Menlo Park, CA
As an intern on Facebook’s Civic Engagement team, I designed experiences for Facebook’s civic products. This involved researching patterns in Facebook’s users, conducting user testing, and designing user experiences that increased civic engagement online. These responsibilities called for a high level of collaboration within the product development team, including product designers, content strategists, product managers, engineers, and UX researchers. In addition to these day-to-day responsibilities, I led a team of designers and engineers at a company hackathon that focused on civic matters.
Halfway through the summer, I initiated and designed a project in which I turned an inaccessible civic product into one that is now fully accessible to users with disabilities. My design and research process is detailed below:
